Mole Mania came to the 3DS eShop today. This is really cool to me because I spent all day yesterday complaining that it wasn't available in the eShop and apparently wouldn't be for a very long time. The lesson here is apparently that complaining will get me what I want. The squeaky wheel gets the grease I guess. There's an overflow of cool stuff on my 3DS that I haven't finished because more stuff keeps going on sale or getting released.
Anyway, Mole Mania. What do I like about Mole Mania? It's a cool little action puzzle game produced by Miyamoto himself for the original Game Boy that was apparently ignored by the general public. Personally, I wasted my childhood, so any new game that hit the Game Boy wound up on my radar because I had nothing better to do. It really is an excellent game. You spend it trying to get a black ball from point "A" to point "B" without dying or getting stuck somewhere. But this is a Nintendo game, so it's always really easy to just start over and try a puzzle again. Since the game wasn't really popular, it just sort of disappeared and there were no sequels or nostalgia references to it in later Nintendo games. I guess there's an off-chance that it's popularity could improve now that it's out there for cheap and getting more attention, but I dunno. Come to think of it, a game like this could be perfect for a system with two screens like the DS. Complaining got me this far. Are you listening, Nintendo?
